These are so cute. They aren't as hard to make as they are time consuming. And as far as not having a lot of pictures, most commercial sights only usually place one picture in their directions. I have tons of pattern booklets that only show the finished product. I have been crocheting so long that I can look at something and figure out the pattern.

It's trivial to find the pattern on the Red Heart website - it's LW2056 - but the directions are identical to what's printed here. The pattern hasn't been altered.

This is a professional looking, complex project, so why arent there any photos to go along with the pattern? The finished photos look very inviting, but I probably wont make these because the instructions are so tedious to slog through. I understand this is from one of the commercial yarn sites, but is there some rule that prevents this site from linking to the original pattern?

These are Amazing! My Grand kids will love these Amazing Animal Mittens, I can see them playing with them now.. This pattern is very well written with a easy to print tab. I have all the yarn needed in my stash and will be making these cute animal mittens. Thank you so much for this free pattern.
